Morbark debuted the Rayco T415 forestry machine.

The T415 allows customers to change between a Predator forestry mower/mulcher head and a Hydra-Stumper stump cutter attachment.

Powered by a 415-hp CAT C9.3B diesel Tier 4 Final engine, the T415 has a closed-loop hydrostatic system to power the mulcher or cutter head, sending 140 gallons per minute to the attachment’s drive motor(s). The hydraulic output is power optimized to match the engine’s power curve, keeping the mulcher/stumper revolutions per minute constant even under load for a finer mulched product with fewer passes.

For mowing and mulching applications, the Predator mulcher head has 91.25-inch cutting width and is powered by a pair of variable displacement drive motors. The Predator mulcher head is equipped with 49 single-bolt teeth, including end teeth with extra carbide. The mulching head also has a synchronous drive belt for low maintenance and long wear life and slotted mounting lugs to follow terrain with minimal machine stress. A manually adjustable tree catcher and hydraulic debris flap is standard equipment.

The Hydra-Stumper’s head cuts through stumps with its 48-inch diameter by 3-inch thick cutter wheel that’s equipped with 56 Monster Tooth cutter tools. The cutting range is 9 feet wide, 8 feet, 10 inches high and 46 inches deep.

“The T415 packs a great deal of power and versatility to efficiently clear vegetation,”said J.R. Bowling, Rayco Manufacturing mulcher specialist. “Having a powerful forestry machine built to maximize mulching capabilities is a great benefit to our large-scale land clearing and vegetation control customers.”

Other key features include Rayco’s exclusive track tensioning system with a monitor, which alerts the operator to overtension situations and provides access to track tension grease fittings; a hydraulic tilt cab to access pumps; and the heavy-duty 35,000-pound hydraulic rear winch.

Rayco plans to add the Denis Cimaf mulching head as an option for the T415 in the near future. Denis Cimaf was acquired by Morbark in December 2018.

The introduction of the T415 comes on the heels of the debut of the C120R forestry mulcher in November 2018. Rayco plans to unveil two new mulcher models later this year.
